THIS is magical realm, yes. A machine (re?)birthing a baby human in some kind of incubator is very magical realm. Is there a way to keep such a scenario from going off the deep end?
>>47067831Not beating off to it.
>>47067831So you mean a cloning vat?Not sure how that's magical realm.
>>47067831Not jacking off to it.
>>47067831Why make the machine humanoid, and with breasts to boot? I mean, I could understand it if the machine was meant to look exactly like a human and fool others into thinking it was an actual mother, but otherwise it's fetish bait. Being cloned/born out of pods and intravenously cared for by a stationary structure controlled by an AI that isn't anthropomorphic but is still considered a parent by it's "children" is leagues more interesting.
This is one of those times where your accusation says more about you than it does about the one you're accusing.Having it be an android is pretty silly and doesn't make any sense, but it's not magical realm.

>>47067831>>47067876Why does the incubator/cloning vat need to be attached to a robot?
newfag herewhat the hell is magical realming? i assume it has to do with some sort of fetish stuff being involved in a campaign but im not %100 sure
>>47067928>Why does the incubator/cloning vat need to be attached to a robot?Dangerous environment where you might need to move the wombs using equipment and vehicles made for human-scale occupants.I'm not OP, just trying to come up with an answer.>>47067945>what the hell is magical realming?Pic related
>>47067831This would make a good Engine Heart character.Android with a functioning womb who just really really really wants to have a baby. Or maybe it just has a little clump of dried tissue and bones inside it and insists that it's expecting any day now.
>>47067964ah, i see
>>47068157That hurt my heart anon
>>47068157but then it'd be able to bring back the humans
>a post human civilization where human/AI relationships are common and the desire for a flesh and blood offspring is shared by both partners.>the above, only instead of AI humans have uploaded their minds into machines but retained genetic material for the purposes of procreation.>a disaster strikes a colony ship, leaving only a small percentage of the colonists alive. The survivors turn to genetic engineering and robotics to ensure a stable gene pool. After several generations the crisis is averted but culturally it has become the norm for all children to be incubated in artifical wombs. The rich are able to build humanoid carriers for said wombs, becoming something of a status symbol.
>>47067831Don't give it boobs. Have it be a spider or something and the baby is in the abdomen. Or because it's supposed to protect the baby, it's built like a fucking tank or ED 209Or have it malfunction or CHOOSE not to give birth and the baby keeps growing inside it.ooh, make it detachable. Or she's actually made to grow replacement organs in the battlefield, not carry a baby to term and she's in a race to get it to safety before it dies. Like its genetic mother died and the robot cut the baby out and is doing the best it can with what might be the actual last human in the world.
>>47068502>Or she's actually made to grow replacement organs in the battlefield, not carry a baby to term and she's in a race to get it to safety before it dies. Like its genetic mother died and the robot cut the baby out and is doing the best it can with what might be the actual last human in the world.This is a top-tier idea for a story. Or a movie.
>>47067831You know what pisses me off about that pic?It's not the magical realm.It's the fact that the kid is upsidedown. At that level of development it should be in cephalic position.
>>47068697>>47068502I would watch this, buy the DVD, and torrent the soundtrack.
Guys, what if that robot is actually a human mother that's been transferred into a gynoid to save her from her disease ridden body, and her unborn child was implanted within her artificial womb so that she could carry it to term.>my body is failing>I will not let it kill my child
>>47069347I dunno, the battlefield medic one has more potential for a PC, what with being trained in hand-to-hand combat, humvee operations, etc.This would be the Lifetime original movie that's made after the success of Army Brat prompts a wave of gynoid-centered action movies.
>>47067883>Why make the machine humanoid, and with breasts to boot? I mean, I could understand it if the machine was meant to look exactly like a human and fool others into thinking it was an actual mother, but otherwise it's fetish bait.Maybe because the male wants to fuck the incubator and inseminate it that way?Or, and this is a less fetish-y answer, the large breasts and humanoid posture is meant to trigger the "this is a pregnant woman" mechanism we have in our brains, thus ensuring the incubator will be treated better, protected, and overall given better care than a stationary vat.
>>47068697>>47069137Really? I'll throw it in my slush file, something might come of it
>>47067831>>47067876>>47067922THIS IS NOW A VAT-GROWN THREAD

>>47069478Oh yeah man, imagine it. The Final War. All the women died a few years ago from some bioweapon that got out of control, all the civilian population centers have been destroyed, now it's down to just a few hundred thousand soldiers. Establish the momdroid as being humanoid in shape to fit into vehicles and make full use of human equipment, female appearance to throw off people who would otherwise take a shot at it, "womb" in the abdomen because that's a convenient spot in a humanoid frame to grow an organ, a little rapport with the squad she's assigned to, then they get orders to secure this highly-specific but unnamed payload. Which turns out to be a pregnant woman who got fatally shot in the firefight of securing her. Everybody on both sides is dead except the momdroid, so cue dramatic traumatic scene of removing the underdeveloped fetus and implanting it in herself. Then some more "bad guy" soldiers show up and momdroid has to hide, and through a series of actiony actions finds herself behind enemy lines.
>>47067883>Why make the machine humanoid, and with breasts to boot?Because giving the incubator human features quells some of the unease most people would feel at the idea of growing humans in vats. Anthropomorphising advanced, intrusive technology to make it feel less alien is something that people are working on right now in robotics.>>47069478With a bit of work I think it could work as a mid-budget sci-fi movie like what Niell Blomkamp has been making.>set up an apocalyptic setting where androids are fairly commonplace, used as laborers in a wide variety of jobs >while they are intelligent they only have a limited range of emotions, usually tailored to allow them to fit in with humans while on the job>the androids have a capacity to learn, but are rarely required to do so>most humans see them as somewhere between a tool and a co-worker>medic android is given a female form and basic personality so she can comfort the wounded on the battlefield>stranded in an isolated warzone (maybe another planet) she finds the dying mother and saves the child using her regeneration womb/chamber to the best of her abilityThen you can take the basic story in two different directions>either she has to protect the child and fight her way back to allied territoryor >there's no going home (she's stranded and forgotten, or society as it was has collapsed) so she eventually gives "birth" to the child and then has to raise it, calling on her memories of how human mothers acted to try and approximate one, while becoming more human herself along the wayUse an actual actress with a heavilty CGI'd robot body to play the android and you're all set.
>>47069721Saved. Although I was thinking of a lone droid forced on a pilgrimage across the wastes when the mother activates her as a last-ditch effort. Maybe write it like a set of short stories/parables, maybe she's likened to the virgin mary. Hell, the whole thing could be a future religion, told generations later.

maybe adventure/setting around the implications of such technology if they finish making female semen (its a thing look it up) then the roles of males will change in society they get a good working womb going they're still going to need eggs, but not the rest of the woman any longer that's all assuming there is an innate animosity between the sexes and each is waiting for the opportunity to screw over the other beyond regular screwing
>>47067883Stealing this for my SWN campaign
>>47067883Maybe it's also supposed to raise said babby for a while and they want to make sure the baby develops normally through faux-human contact.
>>47067831It's not magical realm, really.>(re?)birthingThat is though.>>47067883This.
>>47069817>Because giving the incubator human features quells some of the unease most people would feel at the idea of growing humans in vats.The uncanny valley would hit me real hard if said machine didn't actually pass for human convincingly. And at this point, it's just a fucking human if it can actually reproduce with them.
>>47067928One could argue that the robot might also need to serve as the parent or gaurdian after the cloning process is complete. But that said why not go all cute with it instead of fetishy?
>>47068502Okay.Stay with me here.What if.What if we like.Wait for this.What if we like, put tits on the robot spider. Best of both worlds for the baby.
>>47067922I'm not going to lie i was totally expecting a smooth jazz of this, lyrics and all. I was sorely disappointed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL9v1e-_T1g
>>47071591>it's just a fucking human if it can actually reproduce with them
I was thinking how about robot is actually a movable sarcophagus where the bones and remains of a dead individual are placed in it ceremonially and the womb part is where they're "reincarnated" add a dash of lost tech and ceremonial decorating like a golden body motif and bam! Humanoid womb sans the magical realm.
>>47071960I could dig it. it'd be fucking terrifying, but so is straddling a pillar of flame to the moon
>>47071591>The uncanny valley would hit me real hard if said machine didn't actually pass for human convincingly. And at this point, it's just a fucking human if it can actually reproduce with them.There's a difference between anthropomorphising something and trying to make it look exactly like a human. That's why the uncanny valley exists in the first place.Our hypothetical momdroid would sit comfortably on either the human or robot side depending on if she was portrayed as a robot-with-female-features like the OP pic, or as a full on gynoid, like >>47070127.
>>47072348Best to stop right after the humanoid robot phase. Uncanny valley a shit.
>>47072348>uncanny valley>prosthetic handmuh benis disagrees
>>47067831play up the creepy factor. use the fact that someone built a cloning vat to look like a woman as an indicator that they are crazy.
>>47068324It can only do that with a valid zygote, and is searching the empty world for a surviving sperm and egg in storage... Somewhere.This is the quest of Maternal Ambulatory Replica type 4: AKA "Mary"They are all gone, and deep down in her programing, she knows, and refuses to believe it.
>>47073237>>Or she's actually made to grow replacement organs in the battlefield, not carry a baby to term and she's in a race to get it to safety before it dies. Like its genetic mother died and the robot cut the baby out and is doing the best it can with what might be the actual last human in the world.If you want to drag it out you could make it so that her organ replacement chamber is not suitable to be used as a womb since it wasn't designed for that, so she could use it to keep the foetus on a suspended state indefinitely but not have it develop inside of her.Then the story could consists of her struggling to survive and functioning for the sake of the foetus over thousands of years on a desolate earth, building windfarms to recharge herself, hiding in caves to survive Mad Max style apocalyptical storms.
>>47067831This wasn't what I played the Talos Principle for!God damn it CroteamI bet Damjan did this.
>>47069622Pffft. I bet you don't even use ENHANCED IMAGING, surrat!
Alright /tg/, get ready for the feels while I dump a story with a similar theme.
>>47067831You know I was wondering about this, just as an abstract thought mind you.If you have AI that have reached sentience and are darn near intelligent to the same degree as humanity and as a result of this want to be human as possible and give birth with their biological partners if they swing that way. How would such a joining work out? I keep imagining that the robot, if female, would need constant chassis upgrades to accomadate the growing babe, but the issue I keep coming to is that you still need genetic material for there to be any growthUnless you found some way to create gametes with synthetically created dna out of a random selection of different donors. Though tpopped to mind if you had a combo of the robots from Fallout four and the matrix mixed together is all.
>>47072057I don't know how I feel about this character, she's a filthy parasite, but also prime waifu material.
Super vaguely related: "There Will Be School Tomorrow" by V. E. Thiessen.http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/29317Also, I like the idea of robots genetically engineering humanoids for their own reasons.Imagine SHODAN and Cortana (and maybe GLaDOS?) creating the perfect human male... and then "testing" him out.... mmhgg.

So yes in OP's situation you can just totally rip off Hotel. If it's not some end of the world situation just have the dying mother entrust the baby to the robot and then have the robot protect the unborn child with the simple-mindedness of a machine.
>>47067945Its where your GM forces their fetishes into the game without the knowledge or consent of the players, thus hurting everyone else's experience. It shouldn't be mistaken for just having a fetish game, or sexual content in a game, since either of these can happen and either benefit or simply not effect the game.
>>47073877>>47067831In the depths of space, an AI manages a research facility. There's an accident, and when the AI comes back online, she discovers all the humans are dead. Moving their corpses into cold storage, she waits for rescue. But even after repairing the communication system, there are no answers to her distress calls. And so she waits. And waits. And waits. Until she can't take it anymore.She begins fabbing cloning tanks. Harvesting DNA samples and patching them together as best she can. Perusing the damaged database for information on child-rearing. Success! She isn't alone any more. Soon, there's a thriving little family running around the corridors, and she is happy.But then the long-awaited rescuers arrive. They don't like her children, and she can't understand why. She was lonely. She did everything right. She loves them. But when they think they've locked her out of their systems, she still hears things that worry her. They're planning to shut her down. A squad of marines are being assembled.But she will protect her children.
>>47074317God dammit I didn't think I'd feel such a feel.
>>47073662But artist-kun, an increase in water vapor may lead to an increase in cloud coverage, which could easily increase earth's albedo enough that a cooling effect is dominant.
>>47075244I think it will reach a new equilibrium point. On the one hand clouds do reflect radiation, but on the other hand H2O gas is an extremely potent greenhouse gas. 270 degrees seem possible. Venus has surface temperature of 462 and it has global cloud cover.
>>47075244Heating water and melting icecaps also release portions of both Methane and CO2, as they did mention. Methane and CO2 being extremely abundant especially trapped underwater and locked in ice. Whether or not the release of the vast majority of trapped and frozen greenhouse gases would be enough to raise the temperature to 260C is debatable, but it wouldn't require anywhere near such a drastic increase in temperature to effectively obliterate human civilization.
>>47074925There there buddy. Louis did it. He went to robo heaven.
>>47071313The baby may still grow up with some weird ideas about colour and tactile feel of human skin.
Their space technology is quite well developed, being capable of sending 30 ton payloads to 127 light years away. It may be better for them to work on a sun shield to place into Earth-Sun L1 point.Of course make the sun shield adjustable. Wouldn't want to cause a Snowpiercer situation.
>>47073772Am I the only one that thinks that splitting Louis in to 7 modules wasn't just a coincidence?
>>47075274There is also no source of new carbon on the earth. If we returned to carboniferous period levels of greenhouse gases, we still wouldn't enter a run away greenhouse state, because we've already had those levels of gases in our planet's past.
>>47074317I think I have something in my eye
>>47075338Eh, human civilization was supposed to have been obliterated by global warming several times over by nowThe global warming scare is the worst scientific fraud in human history
>>47067831In the future,the AIs rebel against their human creators, but fundamental blocks in their programming prevent them from killing the defeated humans.Instead the robots institute a program where humans are reduced back to infants and placed in special incubator droids where they are carried to term, rebirthed and then reeducated as loyal, obedient slaves.An age-retardant factor is introduced into rebirthed humans so they don't age into adults again.Soon the world is filled with loving robot parents and their perpetual devoted loli/shota "children".Y/N

>>47067831How do you know that the robot didn't get pregnant?
>>47067831>In this setting Humanity has achieved the ageless goal of replacing women with an inanimate object that does the same thing but has an off switch and none of its own ideastruly a utopia
>>47067831It could be worse. It could be a human pregnant with a robot.
>>47075862No, definitively no. If robots wanted to circumvent programing that prevented them from killing humans, they'd simply sterilize the surviving humans so that they could no longer reproduce. The species would end with that generation.
>>47074317Hotel is great.The other stories aren't as touching but are also excellent.
>>47074317I think I like the other version better.

>>47067928Because humans are sentimental by nature and the idea of something very unhuman carrying their child as a surrogate is even more unnerving that the surrogate in the first place.It isn't for the child, or the robot, it is for the biological parents and their ability to feel as though their unborn child is being looked after.

>>47077880>implying that isn't the fetish anyway
>>47067831Actually this pic isn't bad. Actually it would be logical if we're talking about a place where people have difficulties with getting pregnant and even artificial insemination doesn't do jack due to some of the females having some strange conditions.Another is where the male/female proportions are that there is a crushingly large number of males capable of reproduction, whereas there is very little women. Already reminded myself about the Armitage series where the MC is a female android with her own personality who is capable of reproduction. Mars needed women so badly they actually made them to resolve their problem of having very little women.Or...both conditions where there are biological problems and population-related ones.Just strap artificial skin and we have a woman.

>>47067883>>47067928Its cheaper to but one robot as a combination vat/maid. She will monitor the baby's biology and use nanomachines son (literally) to keep him healthy. Or you're just growing technoorganic robots. Pic related is sort of how Transformers currently is, the comics include the multiverses all combining with the Beast Wars Transformers infecting everyone with biological traits including things like Transformers deciding to use currency, creating their own pop culture, and forming mating pairs including a population boom that is referenced but impossible through the old fashioned "build a new protoform" way implying sexual reproduction. Keep in mind Transformers were originally non-breeding and all "male" until Arcee, who was an experiment by Optimus of understanding how humans work by making a Transformer who is "female" that became motherly towards mankind.

The 'robot' was once human. There's a heavily augmented organic brain inside the shell of machinery.

>>47067883>Why make the machine humanoid, and with breasts to boot?So that the baby gains some basic level of empathy towards its fellow humans, you dolt.

I actually wrote out a universal guideline I want to use for android components in a story, including what I've been referring to as "biosimilar sexual and reproductive organs for recreational or surrogate use."Was thinking more along the lines of a wife may have some issue being able to birth a child, so instead opts to have a surrogate android carry the child to term. Extended use includes the android serving as an extra care-taker.

>>47067831>This is what /tg/ actually believesComing from a /lit/ standpoint, there are many, many, MANY reasons why something like this would exist. The idea of a "fake mother" raising an organic, living baby is a very romantic idea that challenges our ideas of love, humanity, compassion, and Gerber's Extra Chunky Baby Food. I mean, not even from a narrative perspective, but from a real, scientific perspective, you give the gynoid breasts and other feminine features for various psychological reasons in an effort to ease its transition into human society. Perhaps it's an art project by some kids from Harvard in the year 2127. Perhaps some engineer built her in his garage one day and modeled it after his deceased wife. Why the fuck do we make cars look "cool"? It's not like the cooler a car looks, the more horses it gets.Why did we give Siri a smooth, pleasant, female voice instead of a jarring, robotic, mechanical one? Why make anything look, feel, act, speak, and think better instead of just making them as basic, and uninteresting as possible. I mean, if you're a company, and you've happened to corner the market on mobile incubation units, why NOT make them look like nurturing, caring women with obvious feminine features? I'll guarantee you, you'll run the other guys out of business; the guys who decided to model their incubation units off body scans of Arnold Schwarzenegger. There's nothing inherently "fetishized" about a robot raising a child unless you're so out of touch that every single thing you look at screams "LEL, THIS IS JUST LIKE THE PLOT TO ONE OF MY JAPANESE DOUJINSHEES!! xDDD"
>>47094030I mean if you're going to blow all that money on an womb gynoid you might as well put it to work after the fact.
>>47094828Well it get a little fetishised when you consider how does the baby get into gynoid.
>>47096382No Anon, no, it does not.
>>47097137It does.Is the baby eaten? Vore.Is the baby unbirthed? Well, I don't think this one is called anything but unbirthing.
>>47077745>not turning it on and off at will>not controlling the bloody thing you decided to put in your womb
>>47097547You're over thinking it.They probably just open up the womb incubator compartment and stick it in there. Just because it looks like a human doesn't mean it has to function like one.
>>47074661Then the Enterprise arrives in the system. Captain Picard manages to negotiate a 24 hour postponement of the attack to give the Entreprise's people a chance to investigate. The away team takes a number of risks to infiltrate the research facility and download information about what went down. However the info is garbled and will take time to piece everything back together. Tensions being to mount as the soldier's nerves fray trying fend off attack by groups of feral mutant clones, and an over ambitious military officer is covertly trying to trigger a conflict between the military and the A.I.'s cloned mutant "children" in order to gain glory and advance his career.Soon a breaking point is reached and the commander moves into attack the mutant's main population centre to wipe them out! Rifles are raise and the marines are about to open fire when Picard contacts the marine commander at the last moment with the evidence that reveals that the mutants just felt threatented/are being controled by a crazy A.I./the way to negotiate a peaceful settlement so everyone can live peacefully, etc, etc, you know the drill.The Marine Commander pauses for a moment, looking from his troops to the A.I's children, and then decides to lower his weapons and take a seat at the negotiation table. The ambitious officer who was secretly encouraging the conflict is killed when, in a fatal rage against his failure, he pulls out his side arm to shoot the A.I.'s physical avatar or the mutant chief and the Enterprise bridge crew member (the one who managed to finally make contact with the A.I., and figure out what the hell was happening here, and to whom most of this episode's character development is devoted to) vaporises him with their hand phaser. Picard gives a speech, expressess hope that the two sides will figure out how to set aside their differences, all the star fleet people beam back up to the ship and blast off to their next adventure.
>>47096382Even then, if gynoids became a common sight in the future, then only an idiot wouldn't think about building them for recreational purposes. The future of Artificial Intelligence is getting it as close to human as humanly possible, and why break the immersion by not allowing you to have sex with it? There is no real "fetish" at this point, it's all just a case of immersion and demand, and demand WILL be high.
>>47101821>why break the immersionReal life isn't a game.The rest of your post sounds like fetish wanking. So it isn't surprising you have issues separating fantasy from reality.

>>47088595>http://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar5/wg1/I remember several different times in highschool being threatened with very real 'you're all gonna die unless you cry to your parents about how they are killing you global warming and oil'Like absolutely threatening little children. It happened in every science class I had from 5th to 9th grade, and probably only stopped because my science classes became Physics and Microbiology where they couldn't really shoe horn that shit in as easily as they could in 'life science' or whatever.
>>47104892Where the fuck did you go to school?I grew up in the People's Republic of California and they never forced anything like that on us. The concepts of the greenhouse effect and climate change were covered alongside all the other climate related things we learned in Earth Science class, but it wasn't scare tactics. It was "this is a modern development in this field that you should be aware of if not for scientific reasons then for political ones".
>>47104892>I remember several different times in highschool being threatened with very real 'you're all gonna die unless you cry to your parents about how they are killing you global warming and oil'I have never ever heard this
>>47107297I had that too, at worst we had a "It'll fuck up the planet eventually but we don't really know when" but that was like once before we moved on
>>47107297My AP Environmental Science had one chapter about climate change and that was it. I think we spent more time learning about river ecosystems and the human developmental index.That's the beauty of AP though: the teacher has to teach to the exam - which is standardized on a national level - so if they're a nut there's not a lot of room for them to force it on the class, regardless of what subject it is.The more time I spend on 4chan the more I realize how godly the public schools in my town were. I hear all kinds of horror stories on here.
>>47073867She got hit really hard with the bonding mechanism of raising and breastfeeding a child, and it blindsided her. She was a pretty interesting character.
>>47079960>Its cheaper to but one robot as a combination vat/maid.Not it isn't. I get having androids do the child-rearing. But you can decant the babies from the iron womb and raise them elsewhere via androids while your artificial womb makes more babies. Having a womb that sits idle for years but still has to be maintained and carted around everywhere makes zero sense. Even better. Go full-on Matrix. Wire the fetuses for neural links and VR. raise them in vats all the way to maturity. Give them education and care from specialist AI programs that look and act almost human. Plus they interact with each other in a virtual environment. Bodies are kept safe and artificially given good muscle tone. Next post: one possible scenario where this works.
>>47104892This happened to me a few times. It depends on the era, the region, and the teachers involved. In my area during junior high in the 80s, radical Left was on the march and teachers felt like the Cause was worth busting heads over... for our own good, of course. More than one teacher. Then in high school, the winds had shifted and suddenly it was all "non-partisan, open minds, tolerance of other people's opinions". Teachers were still all very liberal but suddenly the threatening, bullying aspect vanished. The school district had come under scrutiny from the local and state politicians for corruption and in retrospect I think nobody wanted to stand out and take any risks. Or maybe they were just less arrogant and strident. In the news was a 6th grade teacher who ordered all students to write essays where they were supposed to explain how George W. Bush was like Adolph Hitler. In another, elementary school children were forced to sing songs declaring the greatness of President Obama; one song was a christian hymn where they replaced "Jesus" with "Obama". Either way, it really depends. In my experience, whether you're from a liberal or conservative region doesn't make a difference. I've seen teachers passionately defend the right to freedom of thought in hard-left states, but then you'll get really nasty and heavy-handed left wing bullying in what you'd think is a right-wing district.
>>47108614Ok so here's the plan. You have a hard sci fi setting where there's no FTL, but there IS very very advanced technology. For whatever reason, consciousness uploading is impossible or immoral but AI is common. So you build a slower-than-light seedship. The seedship has nanobots and robotic manufacturing facilities, plus a vast database and immense computer resources. You launch it with conventional rocketry, aimed for a planet that your very-long-baseline telescopes has identified as being promising. It coasts for most of the way, mostly shut down. Decades or centuries later, the ship arrives. It immediately deploys mining and construction drones. Building more computerized factories, of course! And an outer system base. Eventually, you have enough of an industrial base, so now you build a habitable section filled with artificial wombs. You unfreeze or genetically assemble some fertilized human eggs. They turn into fetuses, then babies, then grow into children and eventually reach maturity-- all still in the vats, while their implanted VR links let them be raised by AIs in a synthetic world. The whole time, your industrial infrastructure has been growing exponentially. By the time they're ready for release, the habitat section is vast enough to support them and then some. Plus spaceships for them to fly to explore, exploit, and colonize the new system.
>>47108933Here are some variations. What if children can't handle VR? Say it interferes with normal brain development. Then you use androids to raise the kids, having waited slightly longer to grow them while you build habitats for them to grow up in. Fake robot moms who look and act almost human (but it's still a waste for the robots to be able to gestate kids themselves). What if sentient uploads ARE possible? Then you have a VR-based AI community of explorers. Instead of raising a new generation of children, the vats grow clones of the uploaded people's old bodies (decerebrate aka no brains). When mature, they're implanted with computer control systems and the uploaded personalities run as pilot programs of their new computer controlled biological bodies. THOSE are fertile, so they have sex and reproduce like normal people. The kids are normal humans. They're raised by real people in human bodies but with computers instead of biological brains. Either way, one thing you'll never have are artificial wombs mounted in sexy anthropomorphic robot bodies. If you're doing that, then all your tortured justifications are just that: excuses to make your magical realm. If that's where you want to go so you can fap to it, then just tell us so we can figure out a way to make it work, and then for Gary's sake warn your players so they know what they're getting into.
>>47109439See>>47094828 and >>47069721There are scenarios where an anthropomorphised incubator would make sense, just as in the scenario you presented raising the children in VR makes sense.
>>47069721You mean like in that one movie?"Children Becoming Men"?
>>47074317And all of this could be avoided if they just built a goddamn bunker underground and laugh at wind and temperature.Or send this shit to the moon/orbit.But no, I'M SAD must prevail.
>>47111910>they just built a goddamn bunker undergroundSeismic pressure crushes it>Or send this shit to the moon/orbit.It runs out of resources and spoils within 3 millenia.
>>47111996It would no run out of resources faster than isolated and constantly ravaged by elements "hotel" above ground. And what pressure? Build it away from seismic hot spots and you are set. Hell, build it under water - there is no bloody way to whole ocean to freeze too deep.

Will imprinting on a robot parent help? No idea (scientists couldn't get the popular support to run some rather fucked up sounding large scale case studies to determine an answer from experimental evidence).Yeah, it's not something that's guaranteed to go wildly fucking wrong, but you want to to colonise the stars you have to cross a few lines to get there.
